Profitable Growth Through innovation, quality and commitment.

STP has two tower categories, Greenfield Towers and Rooftop Towers. Greenfield Towers are standalone towers that require more space and are usually located in rural areas. Rooftop Towers are towers that are located on rooftops of buildings and are usually used in more urban areas.
At STP we believe in providing a better customer experience by maintaining and upgrading our technology continually. This is why we strive to always utilise the latest technology.
STP currently utilising microcell towers in Indonesia. A microcell is a cell in a mobile phone network served by a low power cellular base tower, usually covering a smaller or densely populated urban area such as a mall, a hotel, or a transportation hub. A microcell uses power control to limit the radius of its coverage area to less than two kilometres wide.
STP also utilises a Distributed Antenna System (DAS), which is a network of separated antenna nodes connected to a common source via a transport medium that provides wireless service within a geographic area or structure. The benefits of DAS is that less power is wasted in overcoming penetration and shadowing losses, and because a line-of-sight channel is present more frequently, leading to reduced fade depths and reduced delay spread.
